Because every piece of granite is unique, you will want to visit your stone supplier and choose your own slab. Depending on the size of your countertop and how many separate areas you have, you may need more than one slab. It's best not to rely on samples when it comes to making your granite choice. You can do some preliminary sampling to get an idea of what you might like and what will match your color scheme best, but make sure to choose the exact slab yourself. This is especially true if you are looking for a particular shade or patterning. Because no two slabs are alike, you might end up with something that looks completely different from the sample.
Retro kitchens are funky, charming and quite playful too. They utilize fun colors, vintage pieces and a personality that you can‘t find anywhere else. And today we‘re showing you how to conjuring one right inside your own home. Check out these 20 elements to use when creating a retro kitchen and start getting busy with your redesign or renovation today! A checkered tile floor is an absolute must when creating a true retro kitchen. Black and white is the classic, timeless option but red and white works too if you want something a bit bolder. Add polka dots wherever you deem fit. They add a bit of femininity to the space but they also help create that funky, vintage feel that retro kitchens draw their personality out of. Think linens when it comes to this print as they’ll play nice. Red evokes that playful nature that retro styles have, especially when playing with diner styles.

We recommend to visit every supply house in your area that sells the type of granite you want and try to negotiate a better price, noting that you can often save about 20 percent. The shine and substance of granite is incomparable. Even though the granite may only be in your kitchen, it gives the entire house a sleek feeling, according to the Green Garage Blog. It just plain looks great. And, although it has been in vogue for a number of years, it's not a really trendy surface that will go out of style. Granite is available in a large variety of colors with a large range of patterns and striations. The different mineral contents and source locations impart great variations in appearance. Stylish edges are an option with granite countertops, from simple bullnose or beveled edges to more creative Ogee or Waterfall versions. Granite is durable, but not unbreakable, and will definitely last for decades. Unless you bang very heavy objects on the countertop or treat it very roughly, it will likely last longer than you will. Under normal kitchen conditions, granite will not chip, dent or crack and will stand up to most knives and cooking tools, as well as all of your cooking projects. Totally Granite says you can cut, chop, slice, and dice on a granite countertop without a cutting board.
